Tours, Workshops and More for Schools


Following a £1,000,000 revamp, Plantasia Tropical Zoo is now unrecognisable as a destination. With new educational resources, new animals, and new learning experiences, it cannot be missed as a Learning Outside the Classroom opportunity.

Over forty amazing animals and a multitude of plants are waiting to be discovered! Choose from curriculum linked workshops delivered by our knowledgeable crew, or feel free to design your own self-guided visit.

Can’t come to us right now?

No problem! Our animals also love to go on amazing adventures with outreach opportunities available.
